TSA could pay you $5,000 to redesign the airport security screening process


Airport security lines can be a major pain, and the Transportation Security Administration wants your ideas on how to make the screening process faster and easier.

The TSA has issued a challenge to ordinary travelers to redesign the TSA screening process, and they’re putting $15,000 on the line: $5,000 for the winning proposal, and $2,500 each for four runners-up.

The design should include ways to expedite the standard security lane and the TSA Pre-Check lane, as well as lanes for “premiere” passengers, employees and flight crews, and wheelchair access lines.

“Solvers are expected to provide the concept and provide evidence that it works,” says the TSA in its call for proposals.

As of Tuesday, more than 1,400 people have submitted designs. The contest deadline is Aug. 15.
